ST. LOUIS (AP) – As the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks prep for their showdown in the Super Bowl, a legal fight is playing out over the turf installed last summer at the NFL title game’s venue.
Missouri-based Taylor Turf Installation Incorporated is suing MetLife Stadium’s operators over $292,000 the St. Louis-area company says it still is owed for installing the stadium’s playing surface.
Taylor Turf’s suit in New Jersey names New Meadowlands Stadium Co. LLC and Dalton, Georgia-based Turf Industry Inc., the company that hired Taylor for the job. Neither returned telephone messages seeking comment Friday.
A MetLife Stadium spokeswoman says in a statement to The Associated Press the matter is between Taylor Turf and the Georgia company, with the stadium’s operators not involved in the contractual dispute.
